Nesta semana eu, rapidamente, conversei com alguns alunos sobre Educação Física Escolar. Em determinado momento do papo, surgiu o tal termo “LÚDICO”. Pois bem, daonde vem este termo?
Rapidamente, via wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludus_(ancient_Rome)), podemos ver que:
An elementary or primary school attended by boys and girls up to the age of 11 was a ludus. Ludi were to be found throughout the city, and were run by a ludi magister (schoolmaster) who was often an educated slave or freedman. School started around six o’clock each morning and finished just after midday. Students were taught maths, reading, writing, poetry, geometry and sometimes rhetoric.
The word ludus also referred to a training school for gladiators; see Gladiator: Schools and training. The largest example of a gladiatorial ludus is the Ludus Magnus. The Ludus Dacicus was a school founded by Domitian.
Por favor, não me venham com churumelas (como em: http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atividade_l%C3%BAdica).
Lúdico não tem NADA a ver com descompromisso, brincadeira, e outros ni ni nis da área.
E falando em gladiadores, fotos tiradas por mim na Turquia, quando do ECSS:
